Never Forever 2007

     Sophie is married to Andrew Lee, he is a successful businessman and they live in New York.  His family is very devout Korean Catholic, they regularly attend Church services and meet together to pray.  Andrew's father has recently passed away and the couple has been struggling to have a child.  Andrew feels extreme depression because medically he is the cause of their problem.  He tries to commit suicide but he recovers at least physically.  Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands.  She goes to the fertility clinic but they will not let her use a donor without permission from Andrew.  She meets a Korean man who has come to donate and she decides to contact him with an attractive financial arrangement. 
     This is the second time I've seen this film.  It is complicated and you wonder where this is going to go.  Will Andrew find out about Sophie's plans?  Will Jihah agree to help her?  How will this affect her marriage and her relationship with her husband if he does find out?  If Andrew does find out about her plan, what how will he react?  A lot of questions!!  I really like the clothing worn my Sophie and her manner of approaching and solving her problem.  3 1/2* (I liked this movie)

104 min, Drama directed by Gina Kim with Vera Farmiga, David Lee McInnis, Joseph Y. Kim, Shirley Roeca, Steve Greenstean, Marceline Hugot, Colleen Quinlan, Trisha LaFache, Jun-woo Ha, Kari Swenson Riely, Jackson Pace, Alex Manette.
